Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Associate Professor, BIO5 Institute
Ali Akoglu is an associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the BIO5 Institute at the University of Arizona. He is an expert in high performance scientific computing and parallel computing with a primary focus on restructuring computationally challenging algorithms for achieving high performance on massively parallel computing systems based on Nvidia graphics processing unit, or GPU; Intel Many Integrated Core, or MIC; and Field Programmable Gate Array, or FPGA, architectures.
Akoglu has been involved in many interdisciplinary collaborative projects with the goal of solving the challenges of bridging the gap between the domain scientist, programming environment and emerging highly parallel hardware architectures. His research program has been funded by the National Science Foundation, iPlant Collaborative, U.S. Air Force, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratories, Office of Naval Research and the Army Battle Command Battle Laboratory.
